Pouring a glass of water over your roommate in college was a thing. Sometimes parents did it for kids who wouldn't get out of bed for school.
Caitlin Alyse Hardy told police that it was a joke. Hardy took video of the incident for social media and a concerned mother reported the incident to the police.
Hardy was arrested for “ill-treatment, unnecessary pain, and suffering, and/or deprivation of necessary sustenance” to her baby. In 2014 the mother of four received a misdemeanor for not properly restraining her child in a mother vehicle. The case is still being investigated, however, there is no evidence that harm has been done to her other three children.
